John Henry Praises Red Sox Pitchers, John Farrell, Says Parade Will Take Place Saturday (Video)


The Red Sox are the 2013 World Series champions.

Take a minute and let that sink in. The Sox completed the biggest single-season turnaround in MLB history on Wednesday by winning the World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals after losing 93 games during the 2012 season.

Principal owner John Henry talked to NESN’s Don Orsillo after the Red Sox had defeated the Cardinals in Game 6 at Fenway Park to capture the team’s third title in the last decade. Henry praised the Red Sox’ tremendous pitching, as well as manager John Farrell, who served as the team’s pitching coach during the 2007 championship season. He also said that the Duckboat parade will take place on Saturday, which gives sports fans all over New England a few days to plan a trip to Boston and join in on the celebrations.

Check out what Henry had to say in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
